Program -- Discussion  

Ice Breaker I - Courses in which we anticipate using InTeGrate Modules: Physical Geology, Oceanography, Environmental Sciences, Earth Sciences, Meteorology, Science in Society, Environmental Geology, Physics, Science for pre-service teachers

Ice Breaker II - Concerns: Will students have access to instructor materials; Can we add in local/regional context, examples etc.; can I make it work for a Physics class?; It it easy to pick and choose and use only parts of the modules / units etc.; Do the units within the modules work independently? or must they be used sequentially.

Some issues that came up in discussion:
* Are InTeGrate Modules lined up with NGSS?
* Would be nice to have a module on "Deep time"
* Videos need to be captioned! (ADA Compliance)
* Technology platform independence is important (phone, tablet etc...)
* Some great stuff for a first year seminar course!
